Durrant design chosen for renovation, expansion of landmark hotel 

As winner of a competition in Hangzhou, China, U.S.-based Durrant is designing a $36 million renovation and expansion that will almost double the size of the city-owned Yellow Dragon Hotel, bringing it to nearly a million square feet. The design is a seamless extension of this landmark hotel’s very recognizable architecture, characterized as modern Chinese. Completing a campus plan of luxuriant gardens and pools, two new towers — 13 stories and 9 stories — will be added to the existing six-building complex of 7-story buildings. The project includes renovations to four restaurants and other public areas, and the addition of two ballrooms and below-grade parking. Guest rooms will increase from 420 to 600.
